Two wings, you say? Well, I've got two w1s following me around, lol. Also got a 5w6 but as you can see, I rarely pay it any mind. :P

Enneagrams are probably the trickiest type to figure out, since they're based on fears and such, and we're not keen on our own weaknesses most of the time. First time I heard of someone having two wings on the same type, but hey, sounds legit. If it works for you, that's what matters most.

And if we're not friends on this silly site yet, I will rectify that shortly. :)

As for type 2s, well mine has the w1. I'll admit type 3s and type 7s are the ones I know the least about, let alone their wings. But your hubby picked you, so he can't be that bad. :)

Edit/Addition! Ha! We are friends! I thought so! :)
@GoodOldDreamer

I've read all of three of Riso/Hudson's Enneagram books, and some of their others.

They are our modern day Enneagram pioneers, and say that for a few--especially those who grew up as I did, say, with alcoholic parents, other dysfunction, we may have two wings; that some of us "do" have two, but I don't recall them putting the wings on either side of the Basic Personality.

Seems by memory, which isn't trustworthy right now (I am tired) they would put it more like the tri-type: 415, for example.

They also point out how many 6s mistype as 4s, and I am definitely a 6, so I am still studying. I like closure but not the wrong door. :-)

You'd like my husband; very few people don't. He's human, got flaws, but overall, he's so much more likable than I am; so giving, on the go, extraverted doer.

Tomorrow morning he'll be at his church making hash browns for their prayer breakfast (I don't attend); then after, we'll go to a nearby small town for exploration: That's The Plan, anyway: I had an idea he likes:

Every pay period, we'll pick a town within 40 miles or minutes--whichever is closer, because of my health problems, and go check it out.

We're going back to one we visited last month--we got there too late on a Sunday and their only thrift store closed 45 minutes after we got there so I didn't get to look "all" around which I enjoy.

You and I are friends, even "officially"; I'm glad you still like me enough to want to add me if we weren't.

On the personality forum I used to belong to--before they had a platform change that killed "Friendship" and changed it to "Follow" which I loathed, I had over 240 friends; crazy business...

I got a lot of them by befriending new people to help them settle in, and then never Unfriended them as I didn't want them to feel as though they'd done something wrong.

I also didn't want to have to explain that to have so many friends made keeping in touch with the ones I was truly close to nearly impossible, and terribly time-consuming to track them 'in a good way,' i.e. games they were playing in, troubles they were having, celebrations to say "way to go" et cetera.

Before I came here; after the other site changed platforms and Friends' Lists were gone, I had 60 or so Follow/Followers (more manageable) because I began to treat it--and convey that I was treating it--the same as Friends: No gurus and disciples; not my thing: Reciprocal or fuh-get-a-bowt-it.

I type fast; better say, goodnight, and sleep well.

~K

ADDITION on April 9 2017: Yes, the wings are on each side, so I am 5 (Basic Personality) with a 4 and a 6 wing, or only a 6 masquerading as a 4, i.e. plain 5w6.

    I hope you don't mind me replying here so we don't take over the thread, lol.

    My only experience with typing is what I've read online. But I believe I've read enough to figure out my type, and I suppose that's all that matters in the end, yes? I could always learn more, of course, but my 5 is lazy, lol.

    You and I will always be friends, as long as we're both around here for sure. No worries there, silly. :) I prefer friends lists too. Followers seems so impersonal.

    Love the idea you n your hubby have, going out to visit places. Sounds like a good way to spend time together and keep things interesting. I'm glad you think I'd like him, I'm sure I would. I'm as introverted as they come though, I hope he doesn't mind, lol. I'm more social online than in person for the most part.

    Have a goodnight. I wish you well!

    Hey there :-)

    I don't get notifications that I have responses to blog entries--not that I get many responses, so I saw this when I came by to correct a typo and make an addition.

    Thank you about our being friends; yes, I can be, am, silly.

    Followers sounds either "stalker" like, guru/disciple, or as you say, "Impersonal."

    It doesn't have to be reciprocal, so someone is out there following people who often don't follow back. I dislike it.

    I thought it over--on the other forum, and found a work-around for the remainder of the time I was there: I sent PMs to some of my old friends and let them know that I was treating Follow as Friendship, so if they wanted to be Friends again, hit "Follow" and I would reciprocate; if they did not, however--for whatever reason want to do that, don't hit Follow, no hard feelings.

    Most reciprocated eagerly, almost immediately; a few said they didn't like the Follow system--so much like Facebook, so they'd pass.

    Friendship over there--perhaps here too, gives a "nudge"; I'd be reminded when I saw my Friend's List, "Oh, yeah, how is so-n-so, haven't seen 'em in a while, and I'd go check in with them, Follow didn't have that feel but it served the same purpose once I explained it to those I PMed.

    See you around @GoodOldDreamer . Let's see if this "tag" or "Mention" gets your attention.

    The mention worked so I guess I'll have to remember to use it if I reply to these blogs again, lol. Thanks @BranchMonkey :)

    You don't have to respond if you don't want to but definitely "Mention" me so I see this. Now, this is the kind of game of tag I like: You're it!. :-)

    Oh, no, my husband doesn't mind introverts at all--obviously. He draws people out, letting them set the pace, and he's very good at not being intrusive yet including them in activities so they aren't left out when they want to participate but are too shy or hesitant.

    We had a good time in the town we chose for this weekend, and going to the Military Surplus Warehouse was the best part. Oh the signs are so funny.

    One, the size of a small No Parking Sign, read, "Praying will get you to Heaven but trespassing will get you there sooner."

    That one stands out but there were so many that made me laugh.

    Odd but the place was mellow, all of us walking around studying what was on shelves, going room to room to see what we'd run into--they get lots of whatever comes their way so the staff doesn't know what will be coming in either, and when someone brings certain items to the check out, often they admitted they're stumped as to what it is precisely--and how to price it. :p

    Goodnight, time for Pickles Play and the rest of Bed Prep.
